This image of Ludlow Castle was taken while out with Lesley (cassiecat) and later with Geoff (Trout_man) and last but not least Phil (Phil1958) It was a great day out and even the rain did not put a damper on the day. It was also very nice to meet Geoff and Phil for the first time whose humour has to be experienced. Two very nice people.

Below is a brief description for those who do not know Ludlow what it is like.

Ludlow is a market town in Shropshire, close to the Wales-England border and in the Welsh Marches. It lies within a bend of the River Teme, on its eastern bank, forming an area of 350 acres (1.4 km˛) and centred on a small hill. Atop this hill is the site of Ludlow Castle and the market place. From there the streets of the medieval walled town slope downward to the River Teme, and northward toward the River Corve. The town is in a sheltered spot beneath the Clee Hills which are clearly visible from the town[1]. With a population of around 10,000, Ludlow is the largest town in South Shropshire
Ludlow has nearly 500 listed buildings[3]. They include some fine examples of medieval and Tudor-style half-timbered buildings including the Feathers Hotel. The parish church, St Laurence Church, is the largest in the county[4].



Thank you for taking the time to read this and to look at my image, I do hope that you like it.

with those clouds it looks like an imminent invasion of one sort or another...

been a long time since I've been here and that was only a fleeting visit on the way to somewhere else, a quick stop, and on again... just seems so far to get to

the domed building in the mid ground, is that St Laurence's?

You have excelled on this magnificent scene, - that very heavy cloud threatening to invade the castle walls any minute. Some nice light on the walls battling a last dich attempt to ward off the invading and inevitable rain. I have never seen it look better than this David.

Something special about Autumn Light, it tends to be low and directional and in this case it’s been used to the best effect. The lighting from the right landing on the castle and grounds is super and has produced excellent light modelling in this shot. Superbly captured.
